of obama care exchanges. in an interview last night, wisconsin governor scott walker warned employers can't afford the uncertainty of the affordable care act. >> we need certainty. the fact is, employers aren't seeing it. the political pressure they push back on the employer mandate, but there is incredible uncertainty about the so-called affordable care act. i visit the firms, the companies, small businesses, we don't know what is going to happen next. we're not going to take the risk, even though we have the potential to grow our economy, we have the customer base that wants us to produce more, we're reluctant to go over the 50 mark, the full-time rate. >> where does this all go next? >> for someone to say there is uncertainty in obama care, that is not the lead, obviously. you'll hear things like that from scott. the two aspects is one, yesterday, the president, up with of his hometown papers in chicago, the tribune said, bottom line, in an editorial, bottom line, let's delay and rewrite this ill conceived law, three years of attempting but failing to make this clumsy monstrosity work

and the world are awaiting president obama's decision on what action he may tay in the light of syria using kem rchemical weapons. with the military so stretched, what are the president's options here? we have a rundown of what the military's resources are in the region. hi, jim. >> hi, kelly. appears the markets are making more of this than the white house and u.s. military officials. they say that any strikes against syrian targets would be limited. right now, they're only looking at four guided missile destroyers that are currently in the eastern med. and possibly two submarines. one u.s. and one british. that would launch cruise missiles at a select, limited number of targets in syria, that are related to the release of chemical weapons against the syrian civilians there, just a couple of weeks ago. now, according to officials, jay carney at the white house, the white house spokesman said, regime targets are not on the target list. there is no attempt to overthrow the syrian regime, and a short time ago, british prime minister cameron said that any response from the international community
surrounding the affordable care act as president obama delays part of the law that keeps consumer costs down. we'll have live team coverage now with fox news in martha vineyard and liz macdonald here in new york. why is this limit on the out of pocket expenses delayed? >> actually, it turns out some insurer use separate companies to administer medical coverage in drug benefit, and the computers don't talk to each other and because different companies have different limits on out of pocket costs, they have to figure out a way to keep track of all the out of pocket costs that people are incurring. the result is some people with complex chronic medical conditions like multiple sclerosis pay more than they would have if the $6300 a person cap was in place. this delay imposing a limit on out of pocket costs was actually approved in february, but it was buried in legal and bureaucratic language on the labor department website, no one noticed until the "new york times" picked it up recently. >> interesting. what's been the republican response to all this? >> well, some say it's broof the affordable
been a little more skeptical. i think the long-term is more important to president obama. who is the best person to be there if we lapse back into an economical phone. hh does not want a big international crisis. we want the city growth at home. that is what he is worried about here. tracy: who is that person then? is a decision he will have to make. maybe he thinks that larry summers is the guy. we will have to wait and see, obviously. he is making sure that the larry tracy: i bet you cannot believe how much time we are putting into the discussion of the next fed chair. >> it is always a big decision. i remember when president reagan picked alan greenspan for this job. there was always a lot of attention around it. it is a big choice. what is unusual is you have a lot of people from the air outside. tracy: thank you, sir. ashley: do you think your e-mail is private? if you use google's gmail service, you should not think that. gerri willis joins us with details like the company is making that disclaimer now. gerri: anything in your e-mail is subject to scrutiny. i think this
have a double whammy for home building stocks. last week president obama came out gave a speech on fannie and freddie arguing they ought to be wound down and replaced by another agency. you saw what happened on that, david, home building stocks went through the floor last week tuesday and wednesday. so now we have a double whammy, the concern about higher rates and concerns about less government support overall. that's a real problem. and the itb, the main etf for the home building industry hit a new low for the year, but it wasn't on the rates, it was on concern about fannie and freddie and the lack of support there for the mortgage market. guys, back to you. >> thanks very much, bob. that's still to come. fannie and freddie. that will be a long -- >> begin today just a football security. don't know what's going to happen. >> even the preferreds are a real risk. time for a little bit of a faber report following up on a story here. our viewers have been covering mergers and acquisitions for a long time. but rare indeed when you see a consent solicitation of the shareholders for
" top spot making $25 million. >>> president obama in washington after a vacation at martha's vineyard. he's got his work cut out for him. egypt, regulation and funding the government. john harwood joins us with the latest. what's top priority? >> top priority for the president that is meeting with financial regular laters. he returned from martha's vineyard to a vacation buffeted by the conflict in egypt and other things that are pressing on a national security basis, more revelations about the nsa as well. he's got a very economic, heavy agenda as he comes to back to washington. congress is still out. he meets with the whole array across the government of regulators about trying to keep pace with implementation of dodd/frank, only 40% of the regulations are done. volcker rule is most important, trying to get that done by the end of the year. the president has also got speeches in upstate new york to press his agenda for a middle out economy. that is not likely to go too far with republicans but he's trying to soften up the ground for the fiscal debates this fall. the president has th
a lot of dough, the president, current president, president barack obama, ramped it up. there was no chirping then. i didn't hear chirping going we're going to hit $16 trillion at midnight, let's party! no. but the effects of less government spending definitely going to slow things down because you're not paying for it but it's a good thing. somebody broke the silence, i think it was bank of america, victoria mcgrain from "wall street journal" wrote a piece on wall street journal.com and it talks about the agenda for jackson hole. it's august 22nd to 24th. think about what i was saying. wouldn't it be nice if central bankers got together and tried to really figure out how to solve some of the structural issues? but the topics that were put forth, same old thing. the natural rate of interest, financial prices at zero lower bond, the transition of unconventional monetary policy. global liquidity, cross border cap flows. it seems to me that these are the same old topics, the crisis has come and gone. maybe we need to shake things up a little bit like one of those snow glob
moved behind the scenes to quash the campaign and are insisting that obama not be pressured as he mulls to nominate. >> the president does not like people trashing those he is seriously considering for big jobs. he plainly likes larry summers. there has been a campaign against summers within the senate. you had a significant block of senate democrats who were signing their names to a letter, essentially endorsing yellen. democratic senators have publicly raised questions about whether larry summers would fit in that job. and the president doesn't like being hemmed in. we have seen this at his press conferences. saw it when he went to the hill and talked to democrats and defended pretty forcefully larry summers as somebody who had helped him a good bit, who has a lot to offer. he has been -- summers has been believed to be the front-runner for the job. don't know to what extent that is still the case. but the president doesn't like to be dictated in these sort of scolded his democratic colleagues. >> we have been looking at this, this opposition in the senate and other places that have b
that they've had a difficult time with their reputation for being obstinate as opposed to president obama. their reputation suffered in the 2011 debt crisis. they don't want to go through that again. so that's probably why we will avoid either a government shutdown or a debt default. >> we're back to reading some tea leaves definitely, john, ahead of those midterms. not too far away. thanks so much. our john harwood in washington. interesting point because it relates perfectly to the markets, to the economy, and to what the chairman says every time he's on the hill. >> he often blames congress and the fiscal drag for limiting growth right now in the economy, and what actually happens with the debt ceiling, what actually happens with the continuing resolution, we didn't think it would happen last time. you know, republicans, again, as john harwood just said, they don't want to go through it again, but it is still a significant risk to the economy and it's something the fed is considering as they decide when exactly to begin to pull back their stimulus. they don't want to have a situation w
